Will human infantry have a place in intergalactic future warfare?

Will human infantry have a place in intergalactic future warfare? Or will they be replaced by drone swarms and orbital bombardments?

      Intergalactic war means the scale is so impossible to properly explain in laymans terms, that no conventional form of warfare will apply. Even imagining why would such wars be waged (if the technology has evolved to the point of making them plausible at all) is next to impossible. There will be no drones and no human operators at this point, orbital bombardments are too little of a measure in the intergalactic scale.

      Not sure if Forever War ref but okay

    Yes and no. The drones will also be humans.

    Gay-ass picture aside, people can perform extremely complex work and use their own judgement so yes, probably.

      Likely a former IG sergeant/officer, who got to keep a personal weapon.

    >intergalactic
    Tourist from PrepHole here, intergalactic warfare could only happen between Kardashev III-IV type civilisations. These civilisations would not use soldiers, for the simple reason of how tiny people are in comparison to the scale of a galaxy.
    Weapons would be more like stars being induiced to go supernova at key strategic infrastructure. And even that is small scale, it's just that we can't really even imagine what larger weapons would look like. Maybe one day we will be able to stabilize large quantities of antimatter, or maybe we can create or redireckt black holes.
    But honestly, it's really hard to tell, we can't really plan on anything beyond Kardashev II and a tiny bit above, as that is the most we could achieve with thecnology even concieveable today.
    In interplanetary war or war between planetary systems, infantry could be very usefull, in the way they are used now. It's just that befor the mostly calssical invasion a lot more infrastructure would need to be destroyed.
    Then again, this is all speculation, and i could be wrong on every point. Makeing predictions for far future is mostly pointless.

    I remember reading all those copypastas about humans being insane killing machines when compared to other species, and I honestly think that's pretty much how it would turn out. Given some kind of universe great war with multiple different civilizations, there's bound to be infantry combat at least sometimes. Strategically important solar systems can't just be vaporized, even if all sides have the capability. I imagine humans would make really good taskforces, guns work as an equalizer against more than just other humans

      Most of the people getting angry at T'au only consume 40k through memes and nothing else and are only in it to spam "for the emperor".
      The next group hating T'au just get mad at a race trying to improve their society because "muh grimdark".

      They are a minor alien empire that honestly doesn't deserve to be a tabletop army.

        They're more of a coalition of alien races, really. The kroot are pretty cool, also.

          Too bad we never see these races, but got plenty of ugly mechs

          Talking about races not needed an army, the fucking squats are so shit. What an uninspired army.

          They are tau 2.0, should have stayed tyranid food.

        This, i legitimately don't understand why they even bothered with them when even in-universe they're seen more as a nuisance than a threat, they should been more like the Covenant, and made their numbers way bigger

    I think the Expanse gives a pretty good idea of how wars will be fought after the colonization of the solar system.

    The only reason we haven't used nukes in conflict (after their proliferation) is the fact that if we glass half the planet, it'll effect the side we still live on. Intergalactic is a bit wide but interstellar warfare would probably seem something like what Battletech did, nuclear war becomes common place in an idea of "well, if you won't yield and surrender this planet, I'll just nuke it into submission." The only option would be as was done, create rules of war, therefor making it a legal, economical part of politics rather than whatever else it would be considered.

    >and orbital bombardments?
    biggest sci-fi meme of all time

    glassing a planet would pretty much destroy whatever resources you wanted on it in the first place
    and would require copious amounts of energy to accomplish

    and obviously, if the enemy has even halfway comparable technology then they can just intercept the bombardment

    There's nothing unique or special about biological brains. It's clear artificial brains will be used for warfare once technology is able to do so. It's no different from CIWS or guided missiles replacing the man.

    Robot soldiers will never take off because they can be easily hacked by obese men. Bored NEETs will outpace developments in A.I. every time.

    Maybe they’ll be able to do without us someday. Maybe some mad genius with myopia, a bulging forehead, and a cybernetic mind will devise a weapon that can go down a hole, pick out the opposition, and force it to surrender or die — without killing that gang of your own people they’ve got imprisoned down there. I wouldn’t know; I’m not a genius, I’m an M. I. In the meantime, until they build a machine to replace us, my mates can handle that job and I might be some help on it, too.

    I mean there's always gonna be some meatbags fighting, even if the meta is all drones eventually one side is out of drones and is pressed upon mortally and resists using their Mk.I meatbag, being endangered anyway.

    lmao, why would you need that in a galactic civilization? Just launch an anti-matter powered planet killer missile at the enemy homeworld from your heavily armored Dyson-Sphere solar system. Fucking Star Wars fags are retarded, I swear.
